Forum: GratefulDead Subject: a little jam

A VERY little jam.... This is probably the shortest recommendation ever!
It's a 40-second jam in the tuning break after Sugar Magnolia, in this show:
The tracking isn't very good either - the jam starts in the last 10 seconds of Sugar Mag, and continues at the start of "tuning" - just when it starts to take off, they stop it dead for tuning, of course.

You might not think 40 seconds will make your day, but check it out. I won't describe it, but this jam oozes Dead-ness.

Any other favorite tuning-break jams?

One other unique jamming moment in '71 comes in this show:
Overall not the strongest show (the next night is much better), but it does have a unique St Stephen>drums>jam.... All seems to be pretty ordinary until they hit the jam, then all of a sudden, the last 90 seconds or so they catch fire, and it sounds like they're heading into something as hot as the 4-15-70 Other One jam....and then BAM, tapecut! One of the worst "what happened next?" moments, for sure.

That little 12-2 piece would morph into something very good. Go to the 16:30 mark of this Dark Star
